Rock art locations are in several books, many by Harry Crosby. A search on Nomad will give names and locations of many. I did a post on rock art sites next to or near roads.
As for other "history," there are old mines and missions from the 1700s to 1800s. Even mines from the 1900s are now historic as we near the year 2018.

Looks like Pete Basingr is about 51 minutes ahead of record pace.


Somebody give that boy a bottle of water, will you!

He started to ride his bicycle in Tecate 8 days 16 hours 6 minutes ago.
He is near Rancho Santo Domingo, about 70 miles north of Cuidad Constitucion right now.

We chatted with a solo rider today about 12 miles out from Mulege (as I was fixing a front flat!). 26 days on the route, somewhere here in M this evening.

about 14 minutes seperate the 2 of them,
is the record being broken?
If he sleeps less than 6 hours, he will have a better lead.
Wonder if he knoes about the fresh water spring a mile or so south of San Evaristo?

It all comes down to the amount of sleep he gets tonight.
If he sleeps less than 7 hours, he wakes up with a lead.
Some of these guys sleep 3 or 4 hours a night and pedal there bicycles 200 miles a day, for days on end.

Give the cycles a little space, will you, and maybe a bottle of water too.

We ran into several groups last year while ridding our motorcycles. Our group always slows way down and the guy ridding sweep stops to make sure they have water and supplies they need. Nothing but respect for people doing Baja on a bicycle..I'm probably good for thirty miles a week on mine, it would take me a year to pedal to the tip!
